Hitoshi Takayama (ed) with the cooperation of Hiroshima citizens, 'Hiroshima. In memoriam and today'

The Himat Group 2000. Third edition, no ISBN, pp290. US$12.00. Available from World Friendship Centre, 8-10 Higashi Kannonmachi, Nishi-Ku, Hiroshima 733, Japan; or Peace Resource Centre, Plye Centre Box 1183, Wilmington College, Wilmington, Ohio 45177, USA

This is a book of essays, written by H bomb survivors and concerned citizens.

It is a very useful book for anyone wanting to hear about the first use of the nukiller bomb, and about what nuclear weapons actually do to people.

It also contains messages of support from various foreign leaders, which include several presidents and prime ministers.

Unfortunately, this also includes a message from the still controversial ex-UN Secretary-General, Kurt Waldheim. Perhaps something could be done about that if a fourth edition were to be printed.

Aside from that, it is a very useful reference book.
